What makes this a “gaming” SSD?
If you put "gaming" on a product name you can charge more for it
Yeah, but usually they‘ll at least do *something*, right? Even if it’s just RGB (the most useless of “gaming” trends)? This is literally just the regular SKU with “Gaming” tacked on?
Most of the time it is a sticker or some weird coloring. They never do something, just look at the "gaming" chairs, cheap material and awful colors.
Yeah, it’s often obvious that the only thing “gaming“ about a product is that it’s a color too gaudy to use in normal stuff. Sometimes there are actual differences, though (input devices come to mind... a joystick doesn’t do much for websites), and other times the differences are more to do with a part generally being higher performance.
The fact it says gaming on it is all you need to know.
